After most of a week of getting shitty sleep I woke up this morning at 1am and couldn't get back to sleep because my Brain had the spinnies ... So I got up and wrote down all my active projects, maybe putting them on paper will help tomorrow night's sleep. For the curious they are below the cut tag. There are only 50 or so on the list.

This doesn't include smaller troubleshooting issues, some tasks that I hope to give to my IT staffer and whatever shiny new thing will come up today ... No wonder I feel like there are explosions going off in my head. Long and sort of it is - I am falling off the planet socially because I don't have time and cycles to reach out - soon i will have more staff and hopefully things will improve.
Sorry for the really abominable joke . . . but here I am today making Ham and Bean soup (known around our place as ham & bean paste) and I couldn't resist.
The last few months have been a bear, lots and lots of time at work, and the beginning of me needing to stretch my wings in a fairly extreme way. And there is a lot more coming down the pike. (and a big thank you owed to ErikO for helping me out)
I dislike falling off the planet which I have done quite a big of. I am planning on re-instituting regular events at the house. Probably mostly craft days to start . . . I'll post here as soon as I have confirmed dates - probably look to have them start in February.
Hope everyone had a good new years, ours was pretty quiet - about all I could handle. Evan and I have spent the last few days vegging quietly at home which has been really nice.
1st - I haven't mentioned it here yet, but weekend before last Mom took a spill down the stairs while watching the kids at E and D's house. She turned her ankle around in a way human bones weren't meant to go. End result - spiral fracture of both the tibia and fibula. For a while we thought she might avoid surgery, but Monday they decided to put pins and plates in. She had the surgery yesterday evening. So far she is having a lot of trouble managing the pain with out heavy pain meds, and had a restless night at the hospital. My dad is posting regular updates on facebook.
2nd - I have a new phone number - (847) 693-7951 this number doesn't replace any other number except that it should ring both my home and cell, and any other place I set it to as well.
3rd - As a reminder I read LJ regularly, I post at my blog which cross-posts to LJ and dreamwidth. I try to keep up on twitter, and post occasionally. But I almost never read or update at facebook, so please if you've mostly migrated over to FB, email me if you need me to know something, please don't assume I'll see it if you post it only at FB.
4th - Summer is eating me alive, I can't figure out how it got to be late July already.
5th - I want to see harry potter, go to botanic gardens, clean house, garden, play some games, relax
6th - I am designing a pair of socks that I am very excited about.
7th - "Get dropbox" is a cool app for people using more than one computer. It creates a folder that is automagically synced to its online store of data. You can move files to it as easy as copying or moving files on your computer, you can use the folder on multiple computers or you can access it through the web if you are on a machine that you don't want to install their little app on. Even better it works on all of the big three - Windows, Mac and Linux.
and yeah, I know I am doing a weekend wrap up on Tuesday . . . but seeing as my weekend went from Thursday night to Monday night, it seems valid.
Concert was awesome!! I am not a good media reviewer, I tend to want to just jump up and down and squee. And this concert was definitely squee-worthy. Soon (and assuming permissions) we'll be able to make some of the video we took available, probably on you tube. I just have to figure out this new fangled video thingie - good thing I work where i do :lol: .
Post-concert the house is cleaner than it has been for a LONG LONG time. Which we will desperately try to goad ourselves into maintaining. We have reconfigured the house somewhat, what was the "office" aka "huge pile of crap", is now an nice open space with a couch and lots of windows. What other furniture that is in that room (a china cabinet and some desk bits) will mostly move out over the next few months. With one less couch in the living room, and more spread out seating, the whole front of the house feels much more roomy. It made fitting in the 35 people or so we had for the concert fairly easy, and I think it will allow us to host a few kinds of events that in the past were kind of a problem - like game days.
